Surprisingly the best 3DS launch game came out 7 years ago


It turns out that the best 3DS launch game was also the best DS launch game and the best Nintendo 64 launch game. How can that be you ask? Remember back to the DS launch in 2004. One of the games to launch with the system was a port of Mario 64 with lots of extra goodies. Mario 64 for the N64 was an absolute master piece and is arguable the best 3D platformer ever made. The DS port was superior in many ways but its one big drawback was the lack of an analog stick. Moving Mario around with the d-pad didn’t really work and the packed in thumb pad was not that much better.

Luckily it turns out that the 3DS analog nub works with old DS games, which means that Mario 64 DS just turned in to the definitive version of Mario 64 and one of the greatest games ever. You just need a 3DS for this magical transformation to be possible.

If you skipped over the DS version of Mario 64 because of its awkward control here is a rundown of what makes it so great.

First of all there is 30 new Power Stars to collect, taking it to a total of 150.

Then there’s the improved graphics, they are not a huge improvement over the original but on a small DS screen (or 3DS screen in this case) they look fantastic.

More characters, unlike the original you can now play as Yoshi, Luigi and Wario in addition to Mario. You even start the game as Yoshi, it’s a real shocker or at least it was back in 2004.

A new multiplayer mode has been added and it works with download play. It is not a Monster hunter competitor but being able to play Mario 64 with your friends is kinda wild.

Lastly there are some real addictive mini games, but they are the same ones that later showed up in New Super Mario Bros. Nevertheless it’s a great little addition.
